We are the Fulbright Commission in Belgium

In 1948, the Commission for Educational Exchange between the United States of America, Belgium, and Luxembourg was established with the goal of increasing mutual understanding through academic exchange between citizens of Belgium and Luxembourg and citizens of the United States. Over the past seven decades, the Fulbright Commission in Brussels has facilitated the academic exchange of thousands of students, researchers, teaching assistants, and professors between the United States of America and Belgium.

Today, seventy years after the creation of the program, the Fulbright Commission provides grants for graduate study, pre- and post-doctoral research, foreign language teaching, and university lecturing in the United States. American citizens seeking Fulbright grants for study or research in Belgium or Luxembourg can also obtain information from the Fulbright Commission in Belgium.

"International educational exchange is the most significant current project designed to continue the process of humanizing mankind to the point, we would hope, that men can learn to live in peace--eventually even to cooperate in constructive activities rather than compete in a mindless contest of mutual destruction....We must try to expand the boundaries of human wisdom, empathy and perception, and there is no way of doing that except through education."
Senator J. William Fulbright (1905-1995)
United States Senator from Arkansas
